While you might feel like you're in the Clubhouse every night with Andy Cohen as you tune in to Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, only a select few get to actually step inside the studio. So how does one get tickets to this exclusive affair that's tougher to get into than Hello Dolly with Bette Midler? Well, there's more than one way to take a shotski. (Actually, there's only one way to take a shotski, but you get what we mean.)
The Daily Dish Podcast hosts Rachael and Megan found out how you can get a seat in the Clubhouse in an exclusive interview with WWHL Talent Associate Producer Anthony Lella and Story Associate Producer Danny Visconti. Sadly, their first answer left us in despair.
"There is no real way out there to get tickets." Danny stated. "It's the hardest ticket to get in New York City," Anthony added. But there was a glimmer of hope: "If you're a charitable person, which I hope you are, they're often out at charity auctions so that's how most people get in," Danny explained. "Otherwise, befriend Andy or members of the staff." One of those seems a bit easier than the others.
However, there's an even better, surefire way to get in the Clubhouse: flirt. "If you're cute, if you're a single gay guy in New York City..." Anthony hinted. "And you flirt with Anthony and me at the bar on Friday night...we're very easy to trick and gullible. If you pretend you're interested in us, we will give you tickets," Danny clarified. They even told us what you should order them to ensure those seats. For Anthony, "I like a vodka with a splash, a light splash of cranberry," which he likes to call a "whisper of cranberry juice." For Danny, it's "a vodka soda, splash St. Germaine."
So there you have it. Head to the Manhattan bars Friday night with some cranberry and St. Germaine on hand, and you might just score your ticket to Watch What Happens Live.
